Open Source at HIMSS 2010

I wanted to create a post for those interested in Open Source at HIMSS. I am out of the country, (Finland is so much warmer today at 0 deg Celsius) , so I cannot make it.
So far I know that

Alesha Adamson (MOSS) and Skip McGaughey (OHT) are speaking at the DSS educational session, and

Brian Behlendorf is speaking about CONNECT.

Brian wrote to also remind me…

Tell folks to come to the “interoperability showcase” in exhibit hall C, in particular to the NHIN and Connect area, where we are presenting on Connect with 60 other partners (most non-Fed) who have piloted or set up exhanges with NHIN standards, most of them with Connect, many of them by integrating with other Open Source med software.

CDC has a talk on the Biosense project.

I wish I could see those talks.

You should stop by booth 233 at the Interoperability Showcase and see MOSS demonstrate OpenPIXPDQ, OpenXDS and OpenATNA. MOSS also has a regular vendor booth numbered 7470.  DSS is at booth 2521. PatientOS is at booth 4124 with orange shirts and lunch bags…

Medsphere and ClearHealth abstain this year (I think). I know the Mirth guys are around too.. If you are there and want to get ahold of them, send me a mail and I will do my best to get an introduction…

There was a code drop for a population health tool.

If you are at HIMSS 2010 and care about Open Source, let me know… I would be happy to add you to this post..

  1. Fred, I should have checked your post earlier. After three days hitting the show floor and seminars it was still difficult to find more than a few people interested in pushing open source solutions. Next year I’m going to wear a sign.
